A female United Kingdom age 22-25, anonymous writes:

Hi this may sound really stupid but its always been something i'd like to know the answer to. Why do people, both men and women masturbate? Are there any particular reason why they do it? I have before and i've never known why mainly just because i want to feel it but i have no idea how i originally started doing it or even knew about it. I know this may sound totally ridiculous but i would really like to know.

Masturbation as a young kid seems weird but at a early age you start to explore and realize the feeling of sex and from the videos and talks you hear in society you want to have sex but either your too young or shy because you've never done it before you dont go after it so you just play with yourself. Its the lack of knowledge, you dont know enough about sex so what do you do? you try masturbation. The older you get you tend to masturbate less because it is so much easier to get laid. I used to masturbate every day since i was friggen 14 years old. since i turned 19 i havnt masturbated once! unless i got head or handjob, i got laid so many times as if im trying to break somebodys record or something..

People masturbate for all types of reason ok say your partner doesn't want to have sex with then what do you do? Just replying to fade878 that all sounds fine and dandy lets just look at the studies and findings. Masturbating is selfish? Interesting you should say that fade878 what if your partner is with hold sex from you then what?

There are many reasons why people masturbate. It could be because they are sexually aroused, they could be bored, or it could be because of excess stress. When you masturbate, it makes your body feel good, and it gives you a kick of adrenaline. Try it, and see if you feel better afterwards than you did before.

HonningKanin agony auntMen and woman masterbate because it feels good as many have said before me, makes you feel "happy" as others have said and people may not have a partner and they have an urge or build up of sexual desire.

But I do it mainly as a tool to "unwind" its great to get rid of my stress when i dont have my partner with me and it relaxs my bodys muscles after build up of tenseness.

There have been links in scince to prove that regular orgasism also improve your overal attitude, mental and physical health.
